these forums seem related to your problem, perhaps a solution lies within:

http://forums.torrentspy.com/showthread.php?t=45619

http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?id=11069&p=2

scanning through these three forums, it does seem to be not an issue with your ISP (guess it's just comcast that is the ugly dog in the pack), but more with your settings, which is odd because i believe you did say that you haven't changed anything (that is what led me to think it had more to do with your connection rather than with utorrent itself); are you wireless or directly wired?

Cable operators are part of the entertainment idustry's mafia. They don't really like their customers downloading music on line. So they throttle your connection. I'll bet they don't know or even care that some artists choose to post their copyrighted material here on the archive.

Meanwhile UTorrent works fine here too. I'm downloading soe JGB at about 320 kbs right now. The whole job should be done in an hour...
